A DeviantArt photo-manipulation copyright policy (where you have to get the photographer's approval before posting photo-manipulations on DeviantArt) led me to get the photographer's approval on my alley. (I admit that I probably didn't need his approval, but DeviantArt's policy is vague and got me slightly concerned, so I wanted to lean on the safe side.) Here is the approval I received a couple months back. Just posting this here for our project's records:

I saw your Kilkenny Alley photograph from Ireland online:

I had a feeling that I knew already that place, when I saw your drawing (and source photo) for the first time.... And your email only confirms my intuition... :) What a coincidence.


Here's another photo from Killkenny. (that's me, btw) This small town is really atmospheric and full of nice and inspirational architecture.
